Often described as the Seinfeld of comedy podcasts, in as much as it deals with the 
minutiae of social exchanges, Too Beautiful to Live is one of the longest running 
and most popular comedy shows produced. Intelligent, adroit, and always funny, 
even when things go vaguely awry, Too Beautiful to Live is among the world's most 
entertaining imaginary radio produced. 

The following podcast covers the first quarter of 2011, and has been split into three 
parts. Each part represents a successive month. Please download all three parts to

Luke Burbank 

Burbank began his career in radio by pinch hitting across a variety of shows and 
genres, working either as a producer or as on-air talent. His work touched a 
number of shows, including The Conversation, Rewind, and Day to Day. He later 
became a reporter for NPR before starring as a regular panelist on the comedy 
show Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me! After a stint on The Bryant Park Project Burbank 
returned to Seattle to begin work on Too Beautiful to Live.

Jen Andrews 

Jen Andrews served as producer for a variety of shows at KIRO before becoming 
executive producer of Too Beautiful to Live. The show marked the reunion of 
Burbank and Andrews, who had known each other since childhood. Andrews left 
the show for a time after its cancellation from radio and subsequent transition to 
the podcast format, but soon after rejoined Burbank as he broadcast from his 
home, "Burbank Studios."
